As I mentioned in comments, SoE is indefinitely on hold for copyright reasons.
But there might be a way to continue the project! This was an idea sent to me by a commissioner:
"I was thinking Systems of Entertainment... since you can't release the comic for legal reasons, you could release a new Princess Samus drawing each month. For the drawing, offer a poll to decide what happens next to her and charge a few bucks for a vote. The last pic of her you released was pretty popular and I know I'd kick in five bucks a month for a new one."
What do you guys think? To me this would be doable. I might make it a "choose your own adventure" kind of thing. I'd still hold some sway over the story, but I really like the idea of it being interactive between me and all of you, considering the nature of the narrative (being about free will and all).
Would love to do this, let me know!
